Ground Air Vehicle Cooperation: The DARPA Sept-25 2003 Experiment


Our expriment involves a ground vehicle planning a path through unknown terrain. To explore the terrain, the ground vehicle tasks an air vehicle, which fies over the terrain and acquires a ground map. The ground map is then radioed back to the ground vehicle and the path is modified accordingly.

Results of the experiment performed at the DARPA-MARS PI meeting in Tyson's Corner, VA.
